My degree programme was exceptional: I most enjoyed the variety of modules and how intellectually stimulating they were, allowing me to confidently delve into topics I had no prior knowledge of. I also especially appreciated the industry links I was able to develop through participating in optional opportunities offered both within modules and by the wider department.

I really enjoyed the variety of modules covering many areas of theatrical creativity I hadn’t learned before – my favourite module was Activism & Performance during second year, where we discovered viewing the art of protest as a performance and developed our own “activist performance” presentation in groups on a chosen topic.
